I had twins in sims 2?!??
Wooot?


Lol anyways, i figure we shouldnt put our expectations too high, as this is a very experimental game. Dont get me wrong, i love the creature editor, and all the other ones too. I just happen to know that if you want something so bad it might dissapoint you. To will wright, he usually puts in all the things he announces. Why would there be a problem with underwater cities? Like its not so different than onland cities.
OK, both of you die and let us know what happens.

I dont think Will Wright has ever made a half assed game. All the games his name has been behind I have loved(SimCity, SimEarth, SimAnt, The Sims, all those minor games, blah blah blah). He does a great job at making great games. Some don't turn out so great, The Sims Online, but I don't think it was for lack of effort or desire. I think the fact that he demoed Spore so much at E3 shows that he dedicated to what he is doing and I imagine will try to make Spore an insanely awesome game.

But he is human like anyone else, and Maxis games do contain bugs, some really bad ones. (for example I lost over half the houses in The Sims 2 in one of my neighborhoods only to have them release a patch for it two weeks later :\) If they are getting this much time lets hope we don't have any bugs that are that serious.

Oh, spore is going to have bugs. Huge freaking bugs the size of poodles.
There is no way in hell Will will know all the stupid crap we are going to try so there is no way he can truely foolproof Spore until after we make those mistakes.

Will Wright craps in the woods?  With all that cash you'd think he could at least afford an outhouse  ::)

And I of course expect bugs but my question (which has been answered quite well) was about the features that we're told will be in.  And the reason for the question is that we have actually been told that you can keep a creature underwater, and bring it to sapentience underwater.  And I THINK that we've been told there are flying creatures as well.

Yes, and we shouldn't buy the game unless those things make it in the game.

Thats excatly why releasing a creature editor would be a good idea. A few months or so before release would be enough time for the community to find any bugs so they can be ironed out.
